Marlborough Riesling 2006


  • Bronze: New Zealand International Wine Show 2006
  • Bronze: Royal Easter Show Wine Awards 2007


"A little ripper of a Riesling with honey and pacific rose apples on the nose leading to a crisp, clean citrus-laden finish. Not too sweet, not too dry, just fresh, vibrant and a winner with a lemony, seafoody salad."
Yvonne Marie-Lorkin, Manawatu Standard, 27 January 2007

"This fragrant Marlborough riesling oozes zesty tropical, citrus and stone fruit, is off-dry with a bright, lively crisp dryish finish."
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 25 April 2007

"The racy citrus and mineral flavours romp across the taste buds before a gentler more honeyed taste swings in at the back of the palate."
Deborah Walton & Peter Morice, Timaru Herald, 18 July 2007

"Marlborough is probably New Zealand's finest Riesling region, and this little number is a testament to this." For this wine "on the nose there's a mass of citrus aromatics, from limes to lemons and even mandarin. The palate is both smooth, with a strong acid spine giving it length."
Daniel Pilkington, Bay Weekend, 21 October 2006
